The God of a second chance.  Read Jonah Chapters 1 and 2

I am sure that you are familiar with the story of Jonah.  God chose him to do a specific work in the city of Nineveh.  You would expect a man of God to passionately follow God's request. But just like each of us do at times, this was a moment of weakness.  Jonah must have figured that his thoughts were better than God's thoughts and he decided to es...

Philipians 4th chapter is packed with an abundance of wisdom, truth and knowledge that will keep God's people encouraged and emboldened.

I am sure that you are familiar with many of them:

Philipians 4:6 admonishes us not to be anxious. 4:7 tells us that we have God's peace at our disposal. 4:8 tells us what to think upon t

Read Mark 2:1-12 as it discusses a well-known story about the paralytic who was unable to get to Jesus within the crowd, so his friends lowered him from the roof directly into Jesus' presence. They desired that Jesus would heal their friend, and they would not stop until he was in Jesus' presence.

Why were there so many people in this building?What was the drawing card?What is important about the paralytic getting to Jesus through th...

Think about this:

If Jesus had camped out in Capernaum, he never would had made it to Jerusalem.If He never made it to Jerusalem, He never would have been accused of treason.If He had never been accused of treason, He would never been arrested on trumped up charges.If He had never been arrested on trumped up charges, He never would have had to stand before Pilate.If He had never had to stand before Pilate, He never woul...

Focus on the Assignment

Jesus could have been side-tracked by the crowd's approval. He could have focused totally on healing and getting a great response from the crowd, rather than teaching.

We as Christians should practice missional clarity - staying focused upon the assignment that God has given each of us.  Realize what God has given you to do and stay loyal to God.  Do not yield to the temptation to be popular rather than practicing missional fidelity.

Stay In Control

Jesus' response to all of the compliments from the crowd and for everyone looking for Him caused Him to say "no" sometimes. The crowd can create problems for us too. Remember to say connected to God just as Jesus did, and stay focused on ministry. Don't play to the wrong audience or march to the wrong music.  It is important to remember to play to the Audience of One.

Miracles - Draw Crowds

by: Judy Nichols-Wilson

Miracles attracted the crowds to Jesus also.  Imagine hearing about a Man from Galilee who healed people with health issues; gave sight to the blind; had a lame man to take up his bed and walk; He even helped His mother when the wine was running low at a wedding ceremony. This was astonishing to say the least. To "recharge" Jesus needed time to be away and commune with the Father. As our scripture indicates, even this move did not stop crowds from wanting...

Crowd Control - Attraction

Mark 1:35-39

Jesus had the ability to attract crowds or multitudes. He loved everyone - even the unbeliever. The great thing about this is that because His love was genuine, He naturally attracted people to Himself. He understood the power of touch and loved unconditionally. This spiritually endowed compassionate leader and teacher (who performed healings and wonderful miracles) brought joy to those in His presence.
